"Cliff-notes" version of our adventure...
Kew Gardens, "Wicked" musical at Apollo Victoria Theatre
Went to Victoria Station to buy London Pass. Had Starbucks coffee. Saw theater where we'd be seeing Wicked. Went to Kew. Walked around. Had hamburgers for lunch. Walked around some more. Took train back. Attempted to go to Harrods, but it was closed. Walked back to Victoria Station area. Ate dinner at pub. Discount with London pass. Had quiche - yummy. Pudding deserts. Went to theater. Spectacular show. Lead was the same as Broadway production (Idina Menzel). Very moving. Back to flat to bed.
Kew Gardens - Richmond - Gardens, Glasshouses and Galleries open at 9:30 every day.
Enjoy the magical Christmas celebrations at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. Slip away to the peace and beauty of Kew's unique landscape bedecked with Christmas lights and decorations.
To Kew Gardens station - District Line (the green one, take a Richmond train, not Ealing Broadway or Wimbledon) Frequency: Monday to Friday, every 10 minutes.
